News roundup: HIV/AIDS in the headlines
July 18, 2014
It's been a busy couple of months for the HIV/AIDS community. We've been heartbroken to learn that fellow AIDS activists and researchers lost their lives on a Malaysia Airlines flight to the International AIDS Conference in Australia, and that a toddler thought to be cured of HIV showed signs of infection once again. We've listened keenly as national and global health leaders issued recommendations that more people in high-risk groups should be taking PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) to prevent the spread of HIV. We've celebrated as new advancements were made in the fight against HIV, and we've evaluated and reevaluated our own practices in light of new research findings.
